Celebrate the vibrant red and pink rhododendron blooms on the North Coast at Eureka's Rhododendron Parade.
Last Saturday in April

Rhododendrons are easy enough to spot, with or without blossoms. They are evergreen bushes, up to 12 feet tall, with soft, leathery, deep green leaves 3 to 6 inches in length. Come bloom time, you can’t miss them. Their bright, rounded clusters of large, tubular flowers resemble spotlights against the dark trunks of redwood trees.
